Mobile Phones and Walking Home Alone

Only Year 6 pupils are allowed to bring mobile phones into school with parent/carer permission as they are becoming more responsible and are getting ready to move on to secondary school. For further information on this please view our General Information Booklet.  

We have reason to believe that some Year 5 pupils are walking home alone. For safeguarding reasons, we would not recommend this but please be aware that you do need to let our office know if you give permission for this to happen. Just to clarify – mobile phones in school for Year 5 are not allowed.
